Tuesday, October 5, 2021, an iconic site in Magee, Ms, the Western Sizzlin, began its tumble to the ground!  Many have mixed feelings.  The restaurant is one of those “items” from the past that brings memories of “when I was there.”  

According to Building Inspector Phillip Magee, the demo of the building should be complete by mid November with a projected date of completion of mid January or February. “The demo people are taking their time because they are using some of the items still in the building,” said Magee.

I believe, Checkers will be a drive thru and walk up to window burger place.  The new Pizza Hut will also concentrate on drive thru but will have a sit down area.

  1. We DO NOT want another burger place or pizza hut we need a Applebee’s, O’Charlies, TGI Friday’s or Logan’s. We want and need a good restaurant not another fast food place.
